iChat AV: Audio Chatting? / Drop It to the Dock
If you’re doing an audio chat, do you even need the iChat window open? Well, if you close it, you’ll quit the chat
, but if you minimize the chat window to the dock instead (press Command-M), you can continue your chat, even though the window is no longer visible. When it’s time to end your chat, just click on the minimized chat window in the dock.
